Joan Miro-- Molly McKee

Joan Miró (Spanish, 1893–1983)
Espriu: one print, 1975

Aquatint, and etching with carborundum on Guarro paper
34 х 27.5 in. (86.36 x 69.85 cm.)
Signed, and numbered 23/50 in pencil
Edition of 50
Foundry/Publisher Sala Gaspar, Barcelona

This is an etching made by Joan Miro. I liked this piece because of the lack of color. I like how black and white is the dominant in the etching. I also like how the etching looks like a jungle cat like a panther. This etching also look cartoonist in a way, like the panther from the Jungle Book. Also the entire figure from the etching isnt fully etched out and I like that too because you can still see what the etching is of.
